The Top Ten

1 Code Lyoko Code Lyoko Code Lyoko is a French animated television series created by Thomas Romain and Tania Palumbo and produced by Moonscoop.

Code Lyoko is a diamond in the rough. A brilliantly written, clever show which got overlooked. The show is surprising really dark for a kids show. The characters are three dimensional and very likeable. It has one of the best villains I've seen in a kids show. It has a lot of back story and lore. The story of the protagonist (Aelita) is very sad and it really make emotional invested throughout the show. If you haven't seen it before I highly recommend it.

I Rember loving this show because an elephant was a main character. Good old times. I loved growing up, but however it had the worst series finale I ever scene. Other then that it was still a good show

It was actually sorta good - Goatworlds

Camp Lazlo was awesome

Not as underrated as its predessessor (Rocko's Modern Life) - Goatworlds

It was aired on both Nickelodeon and Nicktoons on July 9, 2005. It is an adaptation of TenNapel's graphic novel, Gear, which is also the name of the cats' monster truck. The series more.

This show was one of Nick's best shows and it needs to come back

Nickelodeon has announced reboots of Rugrats and Rocko's Modern Life in the form of comics (kind of like what they did with Invader Zim). Can this show be next?

This show was one of my favorites as a young one! It reminded me of a zanier Aristocats with amazing characters such as Waffle. God I love Waffle - Masochismismagic

They don't even show reruns.

I loved this show. Shame it got cancelled 4 years ago, and they don't rerun it...



9 ChalkZone ChalkZone ChalkZone is an American animated television series created by Bill Burnett and Larry Huber for Nickelodeon.

Most forgotten and underrated show of all time.

10 American Dragon: Jake Long American Dragon: Jake Long American Dragon: Jake Long is an American animated television series. It was produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and created by Jeff Goode.

Best show of my childhood. No really it was! I just thought it was just cool as a kid. I mean a dude that can turn into a dragon, now that’s interesting. Not only did it have tons of action, but it was also relatable at times which got me entertained. However, I’ve always felt that it was a bit forgotten. I barely see anyone bring it up and when it is brought up people are like ‘eh it’s just okay’ or ‘eh it used to be fine but became bad’.

I personally prefer the first season over the second one. Of course the second season wasn’t bad, like I said earlier many people didn’t like it but I personally thought it was fine. It’s just that I preferred, well all the character’s original designs to the redesigns. At first I was unsure about the dragon since I didn’t see any difference as a kid but now I’ve decided the buff dragon from season 1 had more personality.

Overall, I think this was an amazing show, both in terms of nostalgia and as the show ...more - PageEmperor

11 Fanboy & ChumChum

How Did This Show Ever Get On The List? It Sucks So Hard Don't Believe Me? Look It Up On Google And See How Many People Hate This Disgraceful Cartoon.

This show actually isn't as bad as most people make it out to be, but I still don't really like it. Lenny, the guy who owns the store, is actually a pretty relatable character though

No one likes this show except for Nickelodeon

This steaming hot stinky lump of turd deserves all the hate it gets. #LoveFanboy&ChumChumsHate - Disneykid00

14 Danny Phantom Danny Phantom Danny Phantom is an American animated series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company. The series follows a teenage boy who, after an accident with an unpredictable portal between the human world more.

This is an awesome show, the characters are complex and the storyline is original. Not to mention the animation is great and the comedy is hilarious. (Example: Tucker: "Ember isn't just music. She's an expression of my unique individuality! -camera shows everyone else in the school wearing Ember merchandise- Sam: Oh yeah... You're one of a kind! Every single one of you... /sarcasm)

This was a amazing show and a instant classic still remember the theme song

In my opinion, Danny Phantom is a greater show than Spongebob. It had relatable, three-dimensional characters, unique (and cocky) villains, story lines that put both drama, seriousness, and comedy...
And creating an interesting world called the Ghost Zone, this has a whole path wide open for it... if Nickelodeon would allow it to happen!

This is overrated

15 Kappa Mikey Kappa Mikey Kappa Mikey is an American animated sitcom created by Larry Schwarz. The show is Nicktoons Network's first original half-hour series, bought during the same period as other Animation Collective series such as Three Delivery and Speed Racer: The Next Generation, as well as Flash shows from other studios, more.

This show was so hilarious! It made fun of many popular anime such as Speed Racer, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, etc. But also pays great homage to them as well. The concept of having an American cartoon character in a Japanese anime world was so clever! Not to mention the voice of Gonard is Sean Schemmel! The voice of Goku and Lucario! What more could you want? Apart from that, the characters are funny and lovable, the stories can appeal to kids and sometimes even adults, what's else to say? This series should've lasted a lot longer and it's just sad that it got cancelled. Highly recommend you watch it on KissCartoon.

16 The Amazing World Of Gumball The Amazing World Of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

To all the ass who hate this show you. This cartoon is one of the best some of you whiners say otherwise this is one of the most creative shows in history the only reason you think it sucks is because your brain is to small that you can't comprehend the genius of it and must settle for stuff like teen titans go, modern SpongeBob, and family guy. So take your opinions and die with them. But seriously folks this is still a perfect show that gets a lot of disrespect. I guess we live in a time when people are afraid of something new and original. So in conclusion this is one of the best shows of all time and needs more respect from peop le. a nd to people like swampyfan who hate this show, you disgust me all

THIS IS SO UNDErrated! EVEN HERE! It's overshadowed a lot... It isn't fair that such an awesome show is underrated.

Just because it's bad does not mean it's overrated...

It's great.

17 Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

People don't give this show a chance... you should check it out, both seasons are on Netflix at the moment. - MistyMay113

I like how it had an on going plot that developed with each episode.

The most underrated Scooby Doo incarnation and by far one if the best with a damn good albeit odd villian to boot - Masochismismagic

18 We Bare Bears We Bare Bears An animated comedy show by Daniel Chong about three different species of bears - Grizzly, Panda and Ice bear (polar bear). Since they were little, they wanted to get adopted by owners separately. But then they missed each other too much, so they reunited again. Now as adults, they now live in a cave more.

One of my favorite shows. It makes fun of this generation CORRECTLY. - growlbunny

I wish this awesome show is popular as Spongebob Squarepants.

No apreciates this shkw - Toptenanimallovers

19 My Life As a Teenage Robot My Life As a Teenage Robot My Life as a Teenage Robot is an American animated science fantasy television series created by Rob Renzetti for Nickelodeon.

I believe the only reason why this show isn't appreciated as much is because Nickelodeon was too greedy because of the shows poor ratings. This show rocked! It had great humor, loveable characters, and an interesting premise. If you have the time to watch three seasons of a show that deserves more attention, watch My Life as a Teenage Robot. You won't regret it.

The art style is cute and I remember loving this show as a little kid. The animation isn't as great as some other shows but it's definitely classic.

I love this show! - Gangem

I absolutely love the art style! It’s cute, a bit anime like, and quirky. It’s also very original, too. - IceFoxPlayz

Even boys from my school don't know this.

Oh Yeeaah This Show! Didn't Watch it That much -_0 - ChiefMudkip

I used to hate,but now I see it in a new light

22 El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera is Nickelodeon's first ever flash animation series produced for Nickelodeon and Nicktoons.
23 Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

Not as good as it's predecessor but it has some memorable jokes from Daphne (Who is the comic relief in this show) all the voice actors from Inc. voice the characters in these, except for Velma. - MistyMay113

Sure, the animation isn't the best. But the comedy is hilarious. - TheStormBolt

Scooby doo is among my least favorite cartoons. Just so uninteresting, tedious, and boring. No jokes hit, every episode has the same ending, only occasionally thought-provoking, and forgettable. I only remember one character. People only like it because they liked it when they were younger, along with me but I had a small taste in cartoons. There are just so many better cartoons: adventure time, spongebob, teen titans, and countless others. I’d rate it a 6/10. I consider it the second most overrated cartoon of all time.

24 Spider Riders
25 Back at the Barnyard Back at the Barnyard Back at the Barnyard is a Nickelodeon computer-animated television series that is a spin-off from the 2006 film, Barnyard.

How did this cartoon get so much hate? I thought it was hilarious! There is some really funny stuff in this show I'm really glad I saw, such as the pig segments. The plots I actually found to be enjoyable, and the CGI looks far superior compared to Fanboy & Chum Chum and Planet Sheen. It may have some errors, but I'm overall glad I saw it, and I look forward to watching it again someday. Definitely deserves a lot more attention in my opinion..

This cartoon needs more love, sure the plots and villains can use some work, but still can make me laugh

I remember this show! But only the ghost rabbit episode

I mean, It's not the best, but is better than other Nickelodeon abominations.
*flashbacks to Fred the Show, Fanboy and ChumChum, Planet Sheen, and Mr. Meaty*

I remember this from Sky One but sadly I forgot about it.

This was one of UPN's greatest shows! It's based off the 1989 comic of the same name. The show has a great voice cast, animation is acceptionally well, & I honesty like!

27 Robot and Monster Robot and Monster

Overrated if you ask me. - Goatworlds

Far better than Sonic boom.

This show was my childhood - Haumea

This Show Was Amazing! Why Did It Get Cancelled?! The Animation Was Great, The Humor Was Great, Marf Was Adorable, and Every Character was Likable - ChiefMudkip

Robotboy is so underrated. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Childhood ;_; Probably 2nd best action cartoon after Teen Titans.

Based on the American comic strip, Garfield, the series is executive produced by Garfield creator, Jim Davis, and co-written and voice directed by Mark Evanier, who also wrote most of the episodes for the Garfield and Friends series.

35 Grojband Grojband Grojband is a Canadian animated series developed by Fresh TV and distributed by FremantleMedia, Ltd and created by Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton. more.

Grojband was alright. It wasn't Spongebob amazing, but deserved more attention. - SneakedPrism

37 Brandy and Mr. Whiskers Brandy and Mr. Whiskers
38 Class of 3000 Class of 3000

I mostly skipped over this cartoon when I was younger, but I have lately been watching some episodes and I'm really bummed I skipped over it so much as a kid, cause it's actually a great cartoon. It may not compare to other older Cartoon Network shows like Foster's or Billy & Mandy, but it's still really good. - Disneykid00

I don't get why people don't like this,I mean it has one of the most critically acclaimed musician of all time.

39 Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu

Super underrated - PeeledBanana

The plot is good, the animation is good, the characters have a good backstory, but not exagerate (In a good way). There is drama, humor, action, romance and pretty much everything that makes a show good. I don't understand why people don't like it...

This show has a great backstory and character development, it really deserves more.

41 Sheep In the Big City

Adventurous and optimistic, Wander rides across the galaxy to help persons live freely, against the intentions of Lord Hater to rule the universe. more.

Actually a really good show. The visuals are nice, a lot of episodes have tons of humor, many likeable characters and an interesting concept. Up there amongst my favourite modern cartoons, I watch it every time I don't feel like watching my other favourites. - PageEmperor

One of the better shows of Disney channel, one of my favorites at least, it's sad that it done now

Its still my Favorite Show and IT hot cancelled way to early

Best Show ever

Please don't think I'm an idiot but I like this show, I think Clarence is a good main character, he's an outgoing and extroverted happy guy who can make anything fun. And I'm excited for the big special in the beginning of June. - PeeledBanana

In your face all of you perverts who think this show is crap! Now it is where it should have been a LONG time ago.
